The launch took place at Shirley Methodist Church, a lovely auditorium with the ideal feature that the choir sit at right-angles to the stage, enabling them to watch both Roger and the action on stage at the same time! Ticket sales had initially been slow, but by the time the premiere came round there were good audiences for both performances.

And Roger conducted well too!
We're so excited to have launched this musical on the world. It has a brilliant message of hearing and obeying God.
Trust and obey for there's no other way
To be happy in Jesus than to trust and obey
